Candeo Colors - Melonball

Got a gorgeous one for you today!!! This is Candeo Colors Melonball which is actually an exclusive color sold only on Llarowe.  You can also check out Candeo Colors on faceboook here. This is the description: Melonball has medium sized matte pink squares and hexes, small matte coral hex, large red matte hex, and small matte green hex scattered with a few large glowing rose copper hexes. This totally reminds me of watermelon! I tried this over many different color pink bases but finally decided to layer this over a base coat of OPI Be a Dahlia Won't You. That way it's a deeper shade of pink than the pink squares and hexes and they stand out.

My favorite color is pink so i'm in love! I have gotten a ton of compliments on this one and I like it so much that it's been 3 days and i'm still wearing it lol. Usually I change polish every other day. If you can get your hands on it when there is a restock you totally should! Amazing!

Smitten Polish - You're Turning Violet, Violet

Next up is Smitten Polish - You're Turning Violet, Violet. Ahhhhhh.....what a magnificent polish! Too bad it was so hard to photo. I must have taken a bazillion and none of them captured how awesomely sparkly this polish is. Breathtaking. Seriously. When I got it, I just kept turning the bottle over and over staring at it. A deep violet color with royal blue holographic glitter? Yes, please.

The funny thing was that when I went outside, it looked more of an overall blue with glitter. It was like a whole different polish! Wonderful! Here are pics by the window:

And some more inside where I attempted to show the extreme glittery holo effect. Stupid camera lol.

All in all this polish is to die for. I'm sooooooooooooo glad I added this to my collection. I got a million compliments when I wore it!

Milani 3D Holographic Hi-Res

I recently was checking out the nail polish selection at the local K-Mart and came across this Milani polish. Had to have it! This polish is from the 3D Holographic collection and is called Hi-Res. This is a light purple polish with just about every color holo shimmer. Absolutely stunning in the sunlight! A little hard to get the feel in the photos though.

 Holo polish for $3.99? What a steal! I also picked up Hi-Tech and Cyberspace too. I would have gotten all 6 but those were the only ones they had!! I'll be on the lookout for the others!

Cloud nails! Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and Sinful Colors Snow Me White

For this post I decided to try out my new dotting tools. I recently saw someone's cloud nails on Instagram and decided to give it a try! I used Sally Hansen Pacific Blue and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

I think I did pretty good for my first try!! Especially on my right hand cause i'm so uncoordinated with my left! HAHAH! I'm constantly on Pinterest looking at new nail ideas so we will see what I can come up with next!

Smitten Polish - Glass Elevator

I recently got my hands on some Smitten Polish...yet another fabulous indie polish maker. You can check out her Etsy store here or go like her facebook page here. The first polish I have to show you is called Glass Elevator. I am in love with white polishes!!! The white and blue combo is just gorgeous!!!

 This polish has good coverage.....I didn't even do a base coat of white. This is with 3 coats and a top coat of Seche Vite.

I'm in love!!! White polish and matte glitter are my favorites right now! :)   Can't wait to try some of her other polishes!!!

China Glaze - I'm with the lifeguard

Yes.....I know it's been quite a while since my last post. Summertime is so hectic! Between work and vacations it's been crazy!! I have still been swatching and taking photos though, just not much time to post. So today I have a few to show!!! I'll start with China Glaze I'm with the lifeguard. This is seriously my all time favorite neon polish. And i'm not even that big of a fan of green. It's just soooooooooooo pretty. This is from the Summer Neons Collection. I got a set of 8 and this was the first one I went for!

This was kind of tough to photo as it is tough to get how bright it really is. I tried inside with a flash:

And in natural light by the window:

Either way....this polish is FABULOUS! I haven't swatched the others yet but i'm pretty sure this will be my favorite of them all.

Dollish Polish - Gym Tan Laundry

My second post to show you today is From Dollish Polish and it's called Gym Tan Laundry (GTL). I got it from Overall Beauty's website but you can also like their facebook page here for updates or get their polish from Llarowe. I am currently wearing this polish today and I love it!! Such a gorgeous shade of blue!!! Here is the bottle:

This polish is a beautiful baby blue with small sizes of blue glitter and larger gold colored hexes. This applies beautifully and I applied 2 coats although it was pretty opaque after just 2. Then topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

 Loving this polish!! I don't wanna take it off!! The bad thing is that I just got a giant stash of indie polishes in the mail yesterday and I wanna try them all right away!! Hahah i'm obsessed!  ;)

Lush Lacquer - Chubby Checker(Chubby Bubby)

Yes, I know it's been a few days since my last post. Weekends are so hectic sometimes! I do have 2 polishes to show you today though! :)  First off I will show you Chubby Checker(also known as Chubby Bubby) from Lush Lacquer. This can be purchased at their Etsy shop here: Lush Lacquer. This cute polish could totally be worn by itself with full coverage in 2-3 coats but I decided to use it as a layering polish and put it over Wet N Wild On A Trip.

This polish has all sorts of fun black and white glitter shapes in it. Hexes, bars, squares, and circles. It looked amazing on!! This was one coat of the Wet N Wild and 2 coats of Chubby Checker(Chubby Bubby).

I used one top coat of Seche Vite and it wasn't bumpy at all. It also had a little bit of a shiny golden hint to it when turning your nails in the light. Yet another great polish from Lush Lacquer!
